Crafty Little Owl!

I love finding craft supplies in second hand shops! My most recent find was a kit to make fabric owls! It comes with enough fabric to make two owls but I have a lot of scraps of fabric that I could use to make more owls (of course then there is the question of what to do with all these owls, but we'll come to that later!). 

Here is my first attempt, made from some of the fabrics included in the kit

This own doesn't have wings as the wings that I made following the pattern were horribly misshapen and so I didn't add them on (I'll re-use the fabric I used for them). In future owns I think I'll make each wing from one layer of felt instead of the two layers of fabric with stuffing inside that was advised in the instructions. 

This owl is an ideal size to make a lavender bag and I could attach a loop at the top so it can be hung up. I also thought of making just the front piece for some owls and attaching those flat to tote bags or other items. 

There may be many more of these to follow.... If any of them are good enough, they may well end up in my Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop.
